I’m not sure if this is exact, but it sounds damn good and it’s a hella fun to 
play. I’m sure the lyrics are right. The intro is in the same chord progression 
as the rest of the song (G, Bb, A, F), only the chords are picked not strummed. 
The order in which the strings are picked is pretty easy to figure out. (e-mail 
me if you want me to tab it) The first couple of seconds of the song are just 
Everlast singing with an acoustic. Then the beats and an electric guitar bust 
in. If you’re tryin to sing like him, keep a glass of water handy cuz it’s hard 
on the vocal chords. Have Fun.  


[VERSE 1]

             G            Bb             
They call me white devil, Black Jesus,  
A              F 
Heaven closes, Hell freezes, 
G 
Egos trippin', 
Bb 
Scripts keep flippin' 
A 
Bloods keep bloodin', 
F 
Crypts keep crippin' 
G 
Time keeps slippin' 
Bb 
And I keep fallin' 
A                 F 
I can't see but I hear them callin', 
G 
Ballers ballin' 
Bb 
Players playin', 
A 
Haters fightin', 
F 
Righteous prayin' 
G 
Dawn breaking, 
   Bb 
Manhattan keeps making, 
A 
Brooklyn keeps takin' 
F 
Shook ones keep shakin', 
G 
No time for fakin' 
Bb                     A 
Know what I mean ain't choppin' no pies, 
     F 
Just risin' like cream 
G 
If you're digging the scene, 
Bb 
If you feelin' the vibes, 
A 
Throw your hands in the air, 
F 
Scream out you're alive, 


[Bridge]

        G       Bb 
Singin' na na nana na na 
        A       F 
Singin' na na nana na na 

        G       Bb 
Singin' na na nana na na 
        A       F 
Singin' na na nana na na 


[VERSE 2]

             G            Bb 
They call me Black Jesus, White Moses, 
A               F 
Heaven freezes, hell closes 
G               Bb 
B.Boy poses and punk rock chicks, 
A                            F 
The kids are all right but I need my fix 
G    
If you're diggin' the mix, 
Bb 
If you're feelin' the drugs 
A 
If you're keepin' it real 
F 
If you're livin' like thugs, 
       G                     Bb 
I spit kisses and hugs like .45 slugs 
     A                           F 
Come back on the one and kiss my love gun 
G 
Gotta look that will kill, 
Bb 
A voice that will carry, 
A                          F 
Half a dozen women I think I wanna marry, 
G                   Bb    
Trouble on my mind, refusin' to lose 
A                     F 
Still I've gotta find someone to abuse 
G 
So won't you run spread the news 
Bb 
Help say the word 
(no guitar, just count the beats) 
And jump the fuck back and act like you heard 


[Chorus]

             G            Bb           A 
They call me white devil, Black Jesus, heaven closes 
F             G            Bb           A 
Hell freezes, Black Jesus, White Moses, heaven freezes 
F                    G        Bb               
Hell closes, singin' na na nana na na  
        A        F 
singin' na na nana na na 

*That’s the basic idea, the rest is pretty much the same* 


[VERSE 3]

They call me white sinner, 
Black martyr, 
Live wire 
Fire starter, 
Jungle brother, 
Red neck cracker, 
Freak of nature 
New world slacker, 
Sex junkie lookin' for a dealer 
You can play the leaper girl and I can play the healer 
Shit is only getting realer baby haven't you heard that the 
Bird, bird, bird, yes the bird is the word 

They go one for the trouble, 
Two for the time, 
Three for my homies 
And four for the dimes, 
Singin' lemons to the lime 
Till the break of dawn 
Excuse me (every six minutes) 
Everlast you're on, 
And they go on and on 
Like a rolling stone, 
Baby anywhere I lay my hat is my home 


[Chorus]

             G            Bb           A 
They call me white devil, Black Jesus, heaven closes 
F             G            Bb           A 
Hell freezes, Black Jesus, White Moses, heaven freezes 
F                    G        Bb               
Hell closes, singin' na na nana na na  
        A        F 
singin' na na nana na na

"Bloods keep bloodin',
Crips keep crippin'"
Bloods and crips are two LA gangs, so it should be "Crips", not "Crypts".
